@maanu
Please re-read what has already been posted, sum up:
  1. it CANNOT do anything during boot ONLY once the OS is loaded (maybe, and I mean maybedubbio.gif) , and specifically the OS should be a Windows one - probably of the NT family only unsure.gif

thanks , not for me then . i am happy with PLOP . boot speed is all that matters to me personally .

my mind is still stuck in the following,

1. does it give the SAME speed at boot time even on the legacy motherboard (which only support usb 1.1 at boot time ?)
2. does it need something like PLOP to achieve the above (if it really can do what i posted above)

Yes and no. There is no "real" DOS for Windows XP. Their emergency disk uses Windows ME DOS. The CMD.EXE is a Command-Line Interface, extremely similar to DOS, often simply called DOS, but is not really DOS like old DOS was DOS. DOS. DOS.

But yes, you can chain-load NTLDR, the Windows XP boot-loader, from a DOS. There're a couple of options:
  • Run GRUB.EXE (which is GRUB4DOS) and then chainloader /ntldr
  • Use NTLDR.COM[1]
  • Use WINNT.EXE and trick it into booting XP (nobody has written a tutorial for this yet)


[1] SetupLDR and DOS


two questions plz

1. why it has to be NTLDR.COM
2. plz explain how we can use WINNT.EXE and WHERE to boot into INSTALLED xp ( if thats what you meant ?)

ahh ok , nice . so i suppose the same with some minor changes can also be booted from grub4dos . ?

also , what 'd be the command , where it SILENTLY selects the first available usb AUTOMATICALLY and boot it .

example ,

my usb is 1.1 ,
i booted plpbt from grub4dos
it SHOULD not popup the menu instead it will boot the first available usb automatically ?

It can not.
You need to use:
CODE
linux16 grub.exe


is it because grub2 by default loaded as 32bit , but the grub.exe is 16bit so it downgrades itself ?

Ok, a bit different use than i thought.
Still i would think, that installing drivers on the fly from a second image, would be the more universal approach.


cheers.gif


you mean just the RAID drivers alone or all drivers ? i already told wimb a way , that chinese use to detect the driver from a zip file right from boot before loading the main image (.img or .wim whatever) . in case you are interested too ,then let me know i ll forward you the iso .

just on a side note , Wimb i was thinking the other day , will it be possible for you to borrow the Joakim's idea of booting the .wim images ?

http://www.sanbarrow.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=1695

i mean instead of .img files ? the .wim files are known to peform better even on lesser ram .at least thats what i have seen in PE .

Hello. SourceForge suggests that "bean123" is the current maintainer of GRUB4DOS. Is this accurate? I'd read that "chenall" had been doing some GRUB4DOS work. I'm wondering who's claiming control over "official" releases, etc.


as far as i know , it is tinybit . chenall has his own google code page where he releases his versions , tinybit decides what feature to be added to the OFFICIAL build .

Thanks, that's awesome. Yes, this works.

Addional there are examples with a virtual cdrom.

General approach: continuous or fragmented ISO file, low RAM usage.
CODE
title Slax\n Slax Core 6.1.2 - partial map --mem
write 0x10000 0
map /slax/slax-6.1.2.iso (0xff) || write 0x10000 1
#4x 3727 cd sectors = 14908 md sector = 7632896 bytes
read 0x10000 && map --mem (md)0x10000+14908 (0xff)
map --hook
read 0x10000 && dd if=()/slax/slax-6.1.2.iso of=(0xff) bs=7632896 count=1
root (0xff)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz from=/slax/slax-6.1.2.iso ramdisk_size=6666 root=/dev/ram0 rw autoexec=xconf;telinit~4
initrd /boot/initrd.gz


And there are virtual cdrom drivers firadisk/WinVBlock.
Idea: load PE part to RAM. Boot PE and mount whole disc.

Anyway the dd RAM approach offers a lot of possibilities.
Thanks to the Finder.


you mean a windows pe iso can also be booted to ram PARTIALLY ? but i suppose it got to be simple PE , not the WIMBOOT based or BOOTSDI based , because the pe is packed all in one file in this . or am i missing something ?

Thanks for your reply, Sha0.

I have no idea what version it is, but should be very latest. I get them from an iso file, which has a boot menu that boots into different tools. I hope that I can decouple them.

As for winpe.im_, it is in a directory called axpe, which has 2 other files, ntdetect.com & setupldr.bin.

Thanks again.


open winpe.im_ file with 7z , extract the main .img file . mount it with imdisk.

speed test of usb in windows is NOTHING to do while booting from it.because as you may know , usb speed is vary at boot time and while in windows.

it is for sure that this PLOP driver works , on my asus A7v400 (pretty old ) , it DOES emulate the usb 2.0 speed on USB 1.1 .


in case the things remain like this , report Elmar (author of PLOP) on his forums or on IRC about this bug .,and he ll fix it in next release or even give you the alpha release to test .

he does it mostly . and many motherboards were strange which he had to fix in his driver .

program introduction :

fbinst is a command line tool coded by BEAN . he is also the co-coder of grub4dos .
this utility was coded by keeping in mind to achieve the universal support for booting USB drives on the systems which support it .

following is the main thread (chinese )

http://bbs.znpc.net/viewthread.php?tid=566...;extra=page%3D4

here is what i did with the great help of JACLAZ (now known as Wonko the Sane)

it is automated cmd script which uses latest fbinst and grub4dos (15th May 2010) to make a bootable usb for you .

just a friendly reminded ,

fbinst works ONLY on xp ,2k3, 2k 32BIT versions .
you can use a XP or 2k3 based PE too to run my script .

Enjoy and leave feedback . biggrin.gif
